Green Bay Packers 21, Minnesota Vikings 17 - Pack Takes Advantage Of Turnover

The streak of Brett Favre being without a pick against his former team came to an end at a very bad time for the Vikings.

Favre was scrambling to avoid pressure from Packer linebacker Brad Jones, and threw a pass intended for Bernard Berrian that was intercepted by A.J. Hawk. Hawk returned the ball to the Minnesota 40-yard line.

It took the Packers only five plays to move the 40 yards to the end zone, concluding with a 14-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Greg Jennings.

With about eight and a half minutes left in the third quarter, the Vikings trail the Packers by a score of 21-17.
